I don't use protein powder anymore; don't think I need it so much now. I get my protein from nuts, eggs, milk products, fish & meat. But when I did use a protein powder (when I worked out a lot) I liked Source Naturals "True Whey". It doesn't have the mega amounts of protein that so many people like but i know now that the powders that claim larger amounts of protein, along with low calories, are put together with protein isolates which I have learned are not good for us.

Dr. Mercola sells some excellent protein powders on his website that are very pure and made from healthy ingredients. They're a bit spendy as are almost all the really good protein powders.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it's a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they're terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

I try to get Progressive or Kaizen naturals. Both are whey made from grass fed, organic cows, and only the flavored is sweetened with stevia.
The Progressive brand is very expensive but the Kaizen brand is a little more affordable.

I am very curious about this too!!!! I used to use protein powder everyday, but haven't found a very "clean" one. The labels always say to consult a doctor if pregnant or BFing, but I think that is more covering their butts, than anything. It seems like if it is healthy for us, it should be OK for baby. I hope you get more responses on this one!!!!:-)

Hey all! I am wondering if anyone can recommend a good clean protein powder? Everything I can find has sucralose in it emoticon

Also, I am currently breastfeeding, can I consume protein powder?
